  • ...it celebrates humanity across cultural boundaries just as cinema is presented as a means of rebellion. How violence -- in the name of religion or a nation – destroys humans and humanity is showcased through touching visuals.

  • Debutant filmmaker Deb Medhekar has quite skilfully adapted Tagore’s classic story for the screen. He has weaved an emotionally rich spectacle in the form of Bioscopewala about the bond between fathers and daughters.

  • Walnuts and almonds have been swapped for a cranked-up bioscope in this latest film adaptation, which takes the original story in new, and sometimes interesting, directions.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the enormously evocative aroma of childhood nostalgia that floats through the film — its excesses balanced by the tender interplay between memory and forgetting involving a conflicted father-daughter relationship — and the strong performances, turn it into a poignant and heartfelt adaptation of a beloved tale.

  • ...is as much a love letter to Tagore as to cinema.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...claims to be “inspired by the characters” of the timeless classic hopes to retain the elements of the original story — of love, loss and redemption. In this pursuit, however, it drags the story in various directions — loosely packs in mystery but keeps it from turning into a procedural investigation.

  • There was great potential here; Bioscopewala realizes only some of it.

    Critic rating (?)

  • You come away wondering how they took a wonderful story and spat out a stupid version.
